Differences Between Posts & Pages
Although pages and posts look quite similar when adding the content into WordPress there is a difference and it’s important that you understand them. Posts are part of your blog, they are tied to a date and time for when they were published and they also have an associated category and tag (or multiple categories and tags).
Pages are meant for more static content — the stuff that isn’t changed or appended to all that often. Examples could be your About page, Contact page, Privacy page, an Advertise With Me page, or even a Services or Sales page once you start making some money with your website. Don’t sweat it if you made a post into a page by mistake – everything can be fixed! A simple copy and paste of all content from a post to a page or vice versa will do the trick. Or you can use a handy converter plugin like this one.
